WHAT IS AVATAR THERAPY?
AVATAR therapy is a new talking therapy which aims to reduce the distress that can be experienced when hearing voices, using dialogue with an image or “avatar” of the distressing voice on a computer.
HOW WE BUILD
During the first AVATAR therapy session, the therapist asks the person questions about the distressing voice they hear, to understand how it sounds and what it might look like. The therapist and the person then work together using computer software to recreate these qualities in a digital representation of the voice called an "avatar".
